Jesswar is an independent, Brisbane based hip hop artist hailing from Fiji. At 23 she’s driven, hungry and proving it, having already played at some of Australia's most prominent music festivals such as Laneway, Groovin The Moo and Splendour in the Grass.

With a love for word play, heavy 808's and 7 years of performing behind her, Jesswar has been compared to MC Lyte, one of hip hop's greats, for her clout on stage. Accepted at 16 to the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Jesswar was the only rapper in her entire cohort. This love for the technical and classical mechanics of music shines in her ear for unusual instrumentals, phrasing and brazen stage presence.

She is as ferocious as she is fearless and commands audiences when her hands are on the mic.
